Turkey Devonshire

While SP has been eating the Ketchup & Mustard Pork Chops (Sloppy Pork Chops), I've been eating Turkey Devonshire (aka Kentucky Hot Brown). I know. Not healthy. Creamy cheese sauce & bacon & white bread. But it's so good and it has been on my mind the past few weeks.
I've loved Turkey Devonshire since I was a kid. I forget the name of the restaurant [maybe one of the Freddie's in Peters, which closed, I think, in 1995] but whenever we dined there, I enjoyed this dish.
It's been on my mind because in December 2015, Bobby Flay contributed a Kentucky Hot Brown recipe to Food & Wine and then in a recent Food Network Magazine, Damaris Phillips contributed a Kentucky Hot Brown recipe. We haven't made it in a very long time (4 years). But it was on my mind and I couldn't stop thinking about it.
As delicious as the recipes from Bobby & Damaris sounded, I ended up sticking with our usual Frank Blandi's Original Turkey Devonshire recipe. The sauce is a combination of cheddar cheese, chicken stock, butter, flour, and milk. I like the addition of the chicken stock. Toasted thick white bread topped with roasted turkey topped with bacon and roasted cherry tomatoes topped with cream sauce, sprinkled with paprika, and baked until piping hot.
A delicious mess of comfort food.
